Propaganda During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Propaganda during the COVID-19 pandemic has the appearance of sophisticated organization and execution through a variety of channels including government, media, and academia.

Cautionary Warnings by Experts in Information Warfare

Professor Mark Crispen Miller

Dr. Piers Robinson

Sharyl Attkisson

  • In an interview from December, 2021, journalist Sharyl Attkisson talks about a highly active propaganda industry that turns the world into a sort of Truman Show for everyone.1)
    • Paid commenters to flood the federal registry with comments to make expert and public opinion appear to be other than what it is.

Echoes From History

“Safe and effective” vaccines rolled out against swine flu in 1976 that subsequently turn out to be damaging to several hundred people, particularly with neurological disorders such as Guillain-Barre Syndrome.2). The eerie similarities are hard to ignore.3)

Propaganda Campaigns During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Confirmation of Propaganda Campaigns

Both the governments of Canada and the United Kingdom have admitted using psychological tactics to control policy perceptions during the pandemic.4)

“Using social and behavioural science to support COVID-19 pandemic response” was published on April 30, 2020, by Bavel, Baicker et al.5) The abstract opens by saying;

“The COVID-19 pandemic represents a massive global health crisis. Because the crisis requires large-scale behaviour change and places significant psychological burdens on individuals, insights from the social and behavioural sciences can be used to help align human behaviour with the recommendations of epidemiologists and public health experts.”

UK Office for National Statistics

Office for National Statistics admits just 6,000 people died of Covid-19 in England and Wales between Feb 2020 and Dec 2021 - The Expose - January 20, 2022

In response to a freedom of information request the Office for National Statistics has admitted that just 6,183 people actually died of Covid-19 in England and Wales between February 1st 2020 and 31st December 2021, exposing the 150,000 death toll constantly repeated by the Government, Scientific Advisors, and the mainstream media as an extraordinary lie.

The freedom of information (FOI) request politely asked the Office for National Statistics (ONS) to supply the number of deaths solely caused Covid-19, where Covid-19 was the only cause of death listed on the death certificate.6) 7) NOTE - Expose link has great charts to add as images FOI Ref- ​FOI/2021/3240 8)

Tools of Propaganda Used During the COVID-19 Pandemic

History has seen many asymmetric technologies applied effectively to the task of propagandizing populations. Perhaps never before have so many tools been used in concert than during the pandemic.

Coordinated Messaging

Coordinating the same message, as precisely as possible, effectively provokes acceptance of a false truth in those who absorb it often enough without having the opportunity, or seeing the need to investigate the epistemology of the message or the media.

Coordinated Messages in Social Media

Behavioural Psychology

The following is largely courtesy of Laura Dodsworth and her 2021 book, 17). On February 1, 2022, Dodsworth was interviewed on TalkRadio (UK) about the use, and misuse, of 'nudge', both through Covid and beyond18) and the potential backlash of anger as the narrative collapses.19)

There has been a huge amount of propaganda put out during the pandemic. This has emanated from all sides, but it’s been even more of an asymmetric situation than in previous times when the dominant narrative has been clearly false, such as in the lead-up to the Iraq invasion.

This asymmetry is down to two novel factors and interlinked that have not played such a crucial role, at least in Western democracies in the recent past;

  1. Behavioural psychology and the science of ‘nudge’
  2. Widespread censorship

Freud’s nephew, Edward Berney, literally wrote the book, Propaganda, in 1928, in which he says,

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organised habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute and invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”

More recently, in Crisis and Leviathan, the American economic historian Robert Biggs identified ‘the ratchet effect’, pointing to the temporary or emergency measures put in place by the US government during or following WWI, the Great Depression, WWII, the Nixon-Johnson years, 9/11 and the 2008 global financial crisis, all caused the government to expand, and many survive to this day. Nothing is so permanent as a temporary government measure.

In the UK, this sort of manipulation initially took the form of the Behavioural Insights Team (BIT) who report into Number 10 and the Prime Minister. Their formation was first suggested in 2010, and in 2018, they released a report called 'Behavioural Government: Using Behavioural Science to Improve How Governments Make Decisions'20) and another, more pertinent to what we’re seeing today, called 'Applying Behavioural and Social Sciences to Improving Population Health & Wellbeing in England'21).

On March 11, 2020, David Halpern, who heads up BIT, actually said we should cocoon the elderly until herd immunity is acquired, which sounds as sensible today as it did then. However, on March 22, a BIT sub-group, the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviour (SPI-B) stated that,

…a substantial number of people still do not feel sufficiently personally threatened; it could be that they are reassured by the low death rate in their demographic group, although levels of concern may be rising”.

The group therefore recommended that, “the perceived level of personal threat needs to be increased among those who are complacent, using hard-hitting emotional messaging.”

This led, among other things, to the infamous “Look Into Her Eyes” billboard campaign. Here, we had a close-up shot of the eyes of a terrified individual, always wearing an oxygen mask, and the headline was followed by “…and tell her why you won’t wear a mask” or variations on that theme. It was heavily criticised, especially for suggesting to recently bereaved children that yes, they may well have killed Grandma. At the time of writing, there appears to me no images of this campaign available online.

BIT (also unofficially known as ‘the Nudge Unit’) has now morphed into a ‘social purpose limited company’ with offices in London, Manchester, Paris, New York, Singapore, Sydney, Wellington and Toronto. They ran over 750 projects in 31 countries in 2019 alone, and have trained over 20,000 civil servants around the world on the dark arts of behavioural insights.

BIT is now one of several ‘nudge units’ that work across the UK government. These include;

  • Research, Information and Communications Unit (RICU) – part of the Office for Security and Counter-Terrorism – who focus on covertly engineer and effect “behavioural and attitudinal change” by funding chosen NGOs and grassroots organisations to produce supposedly grassroots multimedia campaigns.
  • The Rapid Response Unit – based at Number 10, dedicated to move fast on social media to the “reclaiming of a fact-based public debate”.
  • Counter Disinformation Cell – very similar to the Rapid Response Unit, both of whom work behind closed doors and are suspected to be behind much of the online censorship in the UK.
  • GCHQ – the UK version of the NSA and engaged in a “cyberwar on anti-vaccine propaganda”. Technically, it’s only allowed to engage with foreign actors, not material originating from the UK.
  • The 77th Brigade – part of the army engaged in ‘non-lethal’ forms of psychological warfare. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Head of Editorial (EMEA) at Twitter, Gordon MacMillan, is a part time officer with the 77th Brigade.
  • Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviour (SPI-B), mentioned earlier, who focus on providing “behavioural science advice aimed at anticipating and helping people to adhere to interventions that are recommended by medical or epidemiological experts.” Initially the make-up of this group was held secret under the rubric of ‘national security’; now it’s open, we see that it includes no disaster recovery specialists, no risk management experts, and on one considering the psychology of risk.

These are just the 'nudge units' we know about operating within the UK government. It is safe to assume there are more that we don't know about, and that every government around the world has their own versions of these.

Mass Formation

“Although this science will be diligently studied, it will be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for a generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen.

2005 Psychogenic Illness

Fear of Terrorist Attack Could Trigger Mass Psychogenic Illness U//FOUO A case of mass psychogenic illness in Chechnya in 2005 and a similar incident in California in 2003 highlight an additional factor to consider in the response to terrorist attacks, particularly those involving chemical, biological, or radiological CBR weapons. The number of those suffering psychogenic illness could far exceed the number of actual casualties in a CBR event.22)

Mass Formation is a term coined by Mattias Desmet, Ph.D. Mass Formation, according to Dr. Desmet requires an element of fear, which can be driven by propaganda. Dr. Robert Malone linked this concept to a form of mass psychosis in his interview with Joe Rogan in December 2020. John Mac Ghlionn wrote an 23) in which he described the phenomenon as more of a psychological paralysis induced by the media. He suggests, “But when it comes to the pandemic, and the ways in which we have come to view the dangers posed, mainstream media outlets have played a more significant role. Through the weaponization of fear, millions of Americans have been conditioned to fear the worst.”

Breaking the Spell- MindSpace, Trance Warfare, and Neuro Linguistic Programming

by By David Gosselin, January 5, 2022

The first spell book to systematically lay out these insights and their application by governments was the UK Institute for Government’s 2010 MindSpace document. The UK Institute for Government describes itself as“leading think tank working to make government more effective.” In the wake of the MindSpace document and its new approach to powerful and “cost-effective” behaviour modification, the Behavioural Insights Team was established as a new psychological warfare node across the Five Eyes countries i.e. Australia, Canada, the USA, New Zealand, and Great Britain.

Notably, Cass Sunstein is considered one of the most cited legal scholars of recent times. During his stint in the Obama administration, Sunstein was at the centre of the crackdown on “conspiracy theories” and the “real risks” they posed to governments and their “antiterrorism policies.”

In a 2008 paper authored by Cass Sunstein and Adrian Vermeule, the authors write..

“…the existence of both domestic and foreign conspiracy theories, we suggest, is no trivial matter, posing real risks to the government’s antiterrorism policies, whatever the latter may be.”

They then went on to list several steps government agencies could take to counter the growing threat of conspiracy theories- https://canadianpatriot.org/2022/01/05/breaking-the-spell-mindspace-trance-warfare-and-neuro-linguistic/

Corporate MEDIA Funding and Operations during the Pandemic

The Trusted News Initiative

“Trusted News Initiative (TNI) to combat spread of harmful vaccine disinformation and announces major research project

At a recent summit chaired by the BBC’s new Director General, Tim Davie, the Trusted News Initiative (TNI) agreed to focus on combatting the spread of harmful vaccine disinformation.

Examples include widely shared memes which link falsehoods about vaccines to freedom and individual liberties. Other posts seek to downplay the risks of coronavirus and suggest there is an ulterior motive behind the development of a vaccine.

Whilst it is important to scrutinise the science behind new Covid-19 vaccines and give voice to legitimate concerns from people wondering what a coronavirus vaccine means for them, questions about levels of immunity and whether a vaccine is appropriate for those with chronic health conditions, it is vital that audiences know they can turn to sources they trust for accurate, impartial information.

TNI partners will alert each other to disinformation which poses an immediate threat to life so content can be reviewed promptly by platforms, whilst publishers ensure they don’t unwittingly republish dangerous falsehoods.

The TNI is already working together to tackle to spread of harmful coronavirus disinformation and previously has had success running a rapid alert system during the UK 2019 General Election, Myanmar and Taiwan 2020 General Elections and the US Presidential Election.

The Trusted News Initiative (TNI) was set up last year to protect audiences and users from disinformation, particularly around moments of jeopardy, such as elections. The TNI complements existing programmes partners have in place.

The partners currently within the TNI are: AP, AFP; BBC, CBC/Radio-Canada, European Broadcasting Union (EBU),Facebook, Financial Times, First Draft, Google/YouTube, The Hindu, Microsoft , Reuters, Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, Twitter, The Washington Post.”24)

Tik Tok

The White House has ramped up efforts in recent weeks to convince more young people to get vaccinated. On Wednesday, pop star Olivia Rodrigo visited the White House to record PSAs, and Dr. Anthony Fauci has begun doing interviews on Tik Tok.

Administration officials view misinformation as a major obstacle to reaching vaccination goals. Conspiracy theories and lies about coronavirus vaccines have proliferated among right-wing media and on social media sites like Facebook, where posts with bad information about vaccine safety spread faster than administrators can remove them.

Clickbait Sites

Gizmodo posted a clickbait slideshow article titled “9 Antivax Lies to Watch Out for This Holiday.27) The alleged “lies” were:

  1. “The vaccines are based on untested, dangerous technology.”
  2. “mRNA vaccines change your DNA.”
  3. “Vaccinated people are 'shedding' onto others.”
  4. “The shots contain scary and/or satanic ingredients.”
  5. “The vaccines are killing more people than the virus is.”
  6. “Vaccines don't prevent transmission.”
  7. “The need for boosters proves the vaccines are useless.”
  8. “Outbreaks in highly vaccinated countries show vaccines don’t work.”
  9. “Kids don’t need the vaccine.”

Manipulation of Trust

The ‘Science’ of Manipulation: Researchers Craft Messages of Guilt, Shame to Foster Vaccine Compliance

There’s an entire field of research dedicated to developing messaging designed to persuade “vaccine-hesitant” individuals to get the COVID-19 vaccine — and none of it has anything to do with facts. Childrens Health Defense By Ann Tomoko Rosen - Feb 4, 2022

There’s an entire field of research dedicated to developing messaging designed to persuade “vaccine-hesitant” individuals to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

None of the messaging examined by researchers involves conveying factual evidence that supports the claims — widely disseminated by Big Pharma, Big Media and public health agencies — that the vaccines are “safe” and “effective.”

Researchers last month published the results of a clinical trial involving two survey experiments on how to manufacture consent for COVID vaccines.

The Yale-sponsored study, “Persuasive messaging to increase COVID-19 vaccine uptake intentions,” examined how different persuasive messages affected 1) intentions to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, 2) willingness to persuade friends and relatives to get the vaccine, 3) fear of those who have not been vaccinated, and 4) social judgment of people who choose not to vaccinate.

Overall, it was a message that appealed to community interest, reciprocity and a sense of embarrassment that proved most persuasive, resulting in a 30% increase in intention to vaccinate, a 24% increase in willingness to advise a friend to get vaccinated and a 38% increase in negative opinions of people who decline the vaccines relative to the placebo message.

Community interest messages that incorporate embarrassment were determined to be most effective in getting people to encourage others to get the vaccine, while “not brave” messaging showed the most promise in creating negative judgments of non-vaccinators. The Yale study findings are consistent with another recent paper, “Vaccination as a Social Contract,” which demonstrated people view vaccination as a social contract and are less willing to cooperate with those who refuse vaccination.28)

Saad Omer, one of the authors of the Yale study, has an extensive interest in public health messaging.

His efforts to combat vaccine hesitancy earned him a spot on the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Strategic Advisory Group of Experts working Group on COVID-19 Vaccines, the Sabine Vaccine Institute’s Board of Trustees and the WHO’s Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety.

In 2020, Omer initiated a “Building Vaccine Confidence Through Tailored Messaging Campaigns” project involving randomized trials in five countries using social media messaging to increase COVID and childhood vaccine coverage.

In his keynote address at the first WHO Global Infodemiology Conference in June 2020, Omer referenced “moral foundation theory” and suggested appealing to values could change decision-making behaviors.

Omer provided details about a messaging study for the HPV vaccine and discussed how similar strategies could be applied to create compliance for COVID measures.

In February 2021, the University of Pennsylvania newsletter, Penn Today, published, “When the Message Matters, Use Science to Craft It,” covering behavioral scientist Jessica Fishman’s Message Effects Lab (MEL) initiative and research related to “what sways decision-making,” particularly with regard to COVID vaccination and testing.

MEL currently has partnerships and ongoing projects with the World Bank, the National Institutes of Health, the CDC, Penn Medicine, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Independence Blue Cross/Blue Shield and the Government of Canada to address health-related behaviors.

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, a branch of HHS, also sponsored research to explore influences on COVID vaccine decision-making. The study, “Attitudes Toward a Potential SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine A Survey of U.S. Adults,”

Behavioral scientist Dr. Rupali Limaye took the messaging a step further. She teaches a free online training course, offered by Johns Hopkins University, that “prepares parents of school-age children, PTAs, community members and school staff to be Vaccine Ambassadors and promote vaccine acceptance in their communities.”

Limaye will be a panelist for an interactive webinar “Making COVID-19 vaccines APPEALing- Pilot message testing in India,” later this month.

Research from Civics Analytics, a technology company that creates data-driven audience campaigns, seconds the notion that effective messaging must evolve.

With funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the company explored COVID concerns among different demographics and determined that a “one-size-fits-all” message would not work. The company said:

“In the spring of 2021, before the Delta variant emerged in the U.S. and when vaccine mandates had not yet been implemented, we found that messages highlighting experiences that are off-limits to unvaccinated individuals (such as concerts or international travel) or emphasizing personal choice were most persuasive…

“As you’ll see in this research, the most persuasive messages have changed.”

According to Civics Analytics, FOMO (fear of missing out) and “personal decision” messages were the most impactful. But more current data indicates the “protecting children” message has become more effective at persuading people to get vaccinated. 29)

How Cases Are Being Counted

Changing the Pandemic Definition

The WHO changed their definition of an influenza pandemic. In May 2009 it read;

“An influenza pandemic occurs when a new influenza virus appears against which the human population has no immunity, resulting in epidemics worldwide with enormous numbers of deaths and illness.”

In September 2009, just before the swine flu ‘pandemic’ struck, it was changed to read;

“A disease epidemic occurs when there are more cases of that disease than normal. A pandemic is a worldwide epidemic of a disease. An influenza pandemic may occur when a new influenza virus appears against which the human population has no immunity. […] Pandemics can be either mild or severe in the illness and death they cause, and the severity of a pandemic can change over the course of that pandemic.”

Pushback Against COVID-19 Pandemic Propaganda

Pushback from Physicians

Irish doctors speak out.32)

In the UK, part of the rhetoric has been to “Protect the NHS” (by masking, distancing, staying home, getting jabbed, getting the booster, etc. etc., depending on the current version of the agenda). Behind this is the story that the hospitals here are either actually overwhelmed, on the verge of being overwhelmed, or concerned that they're about to be overwhelmed sometime in the future. This is presented as being in some way unique. And of course, it's not.

The story is a lot more complicated and involves decades of underfunding by all governments,33) frequent reorganisations that bring in more managers and reduce frontline cover,34) and an overall push towards privatisation.35)

Similarly, the story of hospitals in the USA being overwhelmed by Covid-19 cases was used regularly throughout 2020 and into 2021. However, this is simply not supported by the data.36)

Efficacy of Propaganda Campaigns

New York Times Attack on Dr. Robert Malone

Regarding the recent NYT article concerning myself #1 “The Latest Covid Misinformation Star Says He Invented the Vaccines” Substack April 8, 2022 by Robert W Malone MD, MS

This will the the first of two stubstack articles that I will be sending out today regarding the NYT article recently authored by Davey Alba. Ms. Alba, previously from Buzz Feed News, apparently has left the New York Times to work for Bloomberg, but previously the NYT described her desk and portfolio as “technology reporter covering disinformation and all of its tentacles”. 38)39)

NYT Experts Cited

Dr. Alastair McAlpine told me that the coronavirus vaccines are “the result of hundreds of scientists all over the world.

Dr. Angela Rasmussen, a virologist at the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization at the University of Saskatchewan also told me that some of your statements have exploited “the fact that data-driven course correction is inherent to the scientific process to spread disinformation.”

Dr. Gyula Acsadi, MD (Pediatrician) The idea that he is the inventor of mRNA vaccines is “a totally false claim,” Dr. Gyula Acsadi told me

Commentary Dr. Malone Attack

Dr. Robert Malone let NYT reporter Davey Alba into his home; Dr. Malone has now found out he actually let Medusa, Delilah, and Clytemnestra all in one, into his home; next time, be careful Sir!

Substack by Dr. Paul Alexander April 8, 2022 This is the issue, these people are all cut from the same cloth, venomous, invective, poisonous, petty, they live miserable ‘little’ lives, sorry lives, DC lives, its all they know, I met several in DC. All they do is hurt good people yet get their rocks off on that.

I wish Ms. Alba well in life and hope one day she can write honestly and not allow her hatreds and venom and politics blind her. She must be a great person, likely exceptional. Just lost. Wandering in the wilderness of Trump hatred and likely anger having fallen for the shots. Bought into the COVID lies. She knows she was lied to and may have long term health problems…they all do. I have some in my own families. I hurt for them for the anguish is now cutting.40)
